Color Me SURPRISED!


I constantly swim with so very many Sea Turtles that I thought I knew them.

It appears that I don't have a clue.

The Maui Pink Cap Swimmers came across this turtle which had just captured an octopus and was attempting to tear it apart and eat it. Whoah! I thought turtles were vegetarian.

A little research reveals that they are meat eaters from the time they are hatched but eventually become vegans as they grow older. Who knew?

  2. Wow. Incredible picture. Can't help but feel for the poor octopus. He probably thought they were vegans, too.
